Ameraucana Chicks

It seems the wife of a certain city council candidate was inspired by recent political developments to exercise her longtime “special interest” in urban poultry farming.

You can read more about urban poultry via links in our previous article on the Phoenix Tour de Coop.

In case you are wondering, the cute little chicks are named “Denise” and “Robin.” I held Denise for a while, but she pooped on me. Very uncivil.
